Sanders Sets Utah Trip
Dominique Sanders, the 6-foot, 195-pound three-star cornerback/wide receiver from Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas, didn't start out his senior season the way he hoped. Dunbar took on Abilene High School on Saturday, Aug. 29 and lost 13-56. Sanders says he had one receiving touchdown for the game. Next up for the Wildcats is Molina High School. Although Sanders is ranked as the No. 36 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, he says he prefers offense. "I want to play wide receiver in college," Sanders said. "I want to be able to touch the ball. I like keeping the defenders guessing and I think I've got an edge because I play defense too, so I know what they are going to do." Sanders still denies a leader, but favors Texas Tech, Utah, Texas A&M, Florida and LSU. He says all five have offered (20 offers claimed). "I want to go where I can compete and fit in with the offense," he said. "I want to make sure I'm comfortable on the campus and go where they can help me get to the next level." Sanders has already scheduled an official visit to Utah on Oct. 24, when the Utes play Air Force. "I like the offense that Utah runs," he said. "My coach went there and he basically runs the same thing they do. He's got nothing but good things to say about Utah. "It's also a good opportunity for me to go and play early," Sanders said. "I could probably make an impact there right away since I know the offense. I think I'd be a perfect fit." The Utes are recruiting Sanders as a wide receiver - as are Texas Tech and A&M. He says the Red Raiders are recruiting him the hardest. "They send me the most letters," he said. "They're always trying to communicate with me and I like the coaches a lot. "I've been to Tech before and I like how they practice and I've got to know some of the players already," Sanders said. "They're only a few hours away, so that's a plus but it's not a big deal." The Aggie campus is also only a few hours from Sanders' house. "A&M is just a cool environment," he said. "The coaches and players seem to really get along and the players there are extra cool. I really liked them. "I also like that A&M has a real good engineering program," he said. The two SEC schools on Sanders list, Florida and LSU, are both recruiting him for defense. "But Florida said they're recruiting me more as an athlete," he said. "Florida is a big-time school," he said. "They have some big name players there and I know they'd be able to help me make it to the NFL. "LSU is big too," Sanders said. "Growing up, LSU was always a big name that I'd be hearing. It was always Texas, Alabama and LSU. I was actually a little surprised they offered and I definitely want to check them out." Sanders says that he'll also be watching these teams closely on Saturdays as well. "I'll be watching all these teams," he said. "It's important for me to see the offense and defense and see if I could picture myself playing there." Sanders plan on majoring in engineering and reports a 3.1 core GPA. Although he took the SAT in June, Sanders denies he knows his score. He plans on retaking the SAT and will be taking the ACT during the fall as well.
